Excellent tour with free tastings. Tour guide was very personable and informative. After hearing about the history and ethics of the company we feel good about supporting this Canadian company! The beer we tasted, fresh off the line, was cold, crisp and delicious! Perfect on a hot summer day! Will definitely recommend this beer and the tour experience to others!

I loved my tour of the brewery. We were on a tour with mostly Americans so our tour guide had to go a little more in depth on explaining Canadian ways and things but it was very informative. Katie was a great tour guide! She let my cousin who recently turned 19 blow the Steam Whistle. Also get to know... More

The tour of the steam whistle was excellent. You start off with a taste of the only beer they make and then the tour guide brings you round. The guide was both informative and funny, there is more beer, and you got a real sense of what the ethos of steam whistle was. A must see for anyone who has... More

Having done a few brewery tours, I had high expectations. I was not let down! The guide was extremely friendly and answered all our questions. We were given multiple free samples as well as treated to tons of cool facts and trivia. The history of this place is phenomenal! It's great to hear about the origins of how it all... More

My husband and I failed to book a tour in time. Being in Toronto for a short time, there was no time to see about booking a tour the following day. In stead, Steam Whistle offered a few sample to make something of the experience. As I sat in the upstairs seating area I could hear one of the tour... More

we had a great time and our tour guide really knew what he was talking about!! They gave us 3 minute old beer right off the line. It was so fresh and cold, it was the best beer we ever had ! And the price was really good, we would go again!

The roundhouse is a great location to see. Brandon was our tour guide and he was very entertaining as well as informative. Got to try a two-minute old beer which was great. The cost was a great value between the beer samples on the tour and the tour options with either souvenirs or beer options. Highly recommend the tour if... More

Such a fun way to spend a little bit of your day. Get some tasty beer samples and hear about how Steam Whistle was started up. Our guide was just great!

Brought my husband here for a milestone birthday, 25 years, haha. We had a good time. the beer is great and the tour sparks that Canadian pride a little bit. I wish we could have gotten a chance to see a bit more of the process, more of the work that goes into making the beer and even the bottle... More
